Police seek assistance in identifying vehicle used in robbery

The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance to identify a vehicle believed to be used during a robbery that occurred two months ago.

On Friday, June 24, 2016, at approximately 7 p.m., a woman and her elderly father-in-law returned to their residence in the 600 block of Center A Street N.W. As the woman was helping her father-in-law out of her vehicle, she was approached from behind by an unknown offender. The offender grabbed her, put a weapon to her head, and instructed her not to say anything.

A second offender approached the elderly man and pulled him to the ground, while removing his jacket. Once the jacket was removed, both offenders fled northbound on Center A Street N.W.

The offenders are described as Caucasian, between 5’8” and 6’ tall, with medium builds. Both were wearing black clothing, masks and gloves.

It is believed the offenders were driving a grey Pontiac Torrent SUV, with a roof rack and running boards. Photos of the vehicle are available on The City of Calgary Newsroom.
